In an interview with Mr. McAdoo
on the way from the train he ex
pressed chagrin and regret that what
he termed us pernicious propaganda
had been circulated to the effect that
he had been sick recently and would
not be able to deliver the speeches
I scheduled for him in Utah.
He said that the story that had
been printed in the press was abso
lutely without foundation and that for
the past few weeks he had never en
joyed better health. The story had Its
foundation, he sjid, due to his missing
a train while enroute to Ogden.

Mr McAdoo in his interview,

middle west through high railroad
raUs. He called th- middle west tin
empire dependent upon land trans
port and harged that the railroads,
despite billions of increased earnings
mulcted from shippers and farmers
!,;. the Eech-'CunUttins bill, were un
able to handle the traffic of normal
times. He said business must face,
the embargo and rationing of cars
whenever conditions became normally
good. He charged the greatest blight
cn business was weakness of Our rail
road system, that during federal con
trol one and a quarter billions Of dol
lars had been spent by the govern
ment on improvements and still the
transportation machine was wholly In-
adequat t" meet the demands of in
ternal commerce; that the railroads
are doing nothing to improve condi
tions and will be as hopelessly broken

1917, when the government was forced
to take them over to save the war.
RATE MAKING ATTACKED.
McAdoo allu. ked the alleged inlo,-
iH1 of tho present rate making sys
tem under the E8ch-Cuutmlne bin
which Is based on an arbitrary ag
gregate valuation ef ull railroads' val
uation. Necessarily there is Includ
ed railroads which should never have
been built und never will earn any
thing on the invostment. other rail
roads Improvldently or unwisely ..uilt
will never earn itivirjends. Yet the
Bach-Cummins bill is forcing the
public to pay ! per cent on these
poor Investments. McAdoo said the
only reasonable basis for rate making
was the value of th transportation
sei ice performed ami what the traf
fic would hoar. Disregard of these
fundamentals he said, had imposed on
the country a blundering and extor
tionate '.''stem Of freight tariffs that

on any other consideration put a pre

Wilbur A. Mott, special prosecutor

not say definitely, that no arrest would
be made until the case has been laid
before the Somerset county grand jury

While it was true Mr. Mott said. I
that Mrs. Gibson farmer and pig-rais

and he could see no need at present j
for an Immediate arrest. Ho declared,
however, that he was ready to order HI
one or several arrests without waiting
